The Caucasian Chalk Circle

10 October @ 8.00 pm - 10.00 pm

Free, but pre-register

Brecht’s epic is directed by Orlando Pabotoy as the NYU Abu Dhabi Theater Program’s ninth fall production, performed by students from across the university. The chalk circle is drawn by an eccentric judge determining custody of a child between the governor’s wife who abandoned the child and the young servant who saved him; whichever woman can pull the child from the circle will be granted custody. It’s a meaty work, with elements of social justice and politics overlaid by Brecht’s characteristic non-naturalistic theatre style.

There are performances also on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 October.
